John Ruskin : artist and observer by Christopher Newall( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known as a writer on art, architecture, nature, landscape, economics and history, John Ruskin (1819-1900) also produced extraordinary drawings and watercolours that offer insight into the workings of his mind and are testimony to the scrupulous attention he gave to everything that interested him. In his drawings, Ruskin revealed a range of emotional responses, from euphoric delight in pattern, colour and texture to utter despondency at what he came to perceive as the ultimate corruption of all things. Accompanying a landmark exhibition at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, and National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh, in 2014, this book explores a private but hugely revealing aspect of Ruskin's creative life. -- from back cover
Kyffin Williams by Nicholas Sinclair( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kyffin Williams is the central figure in contemporary Welsh painting and this book examines the full range of his work from the mid-1940s to the present day." "From the outset of his career, Kyffin Williams took both the landscape and the people of North Wales as his subjects, and he has remained faithful to them for almost sixty years. He has realised, through his oil paintings, his watercolours and his drawings, the spirit of a mountainous landscape and its inhabitants that now forms the cornerstone upon which we understand and visualise the essence of North Wales." "Including an introductory essay by Ian Jeffrey, one of Britain's leading art historians, the book also profiles ten sites in North Wales where the artist has worked throughout his career. The inclusion of a range of location photographs by Nicholas Sinclair helps to explain both Williams' inspiration and how he interprets the world around him."--BOOK JACKET
